Flypoet - Spoken Word, Art, Music, Comedy in Inglewood-Men&Gu­ests Welcome

 

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:  PLEASE PAY WHEN YOU RSVP, PAYPAL STRONGLY PREFERRED - see instructions below - and please note what you are paying for when you make the Paypal payment.  There is no "maybe" option in Meetup anymore, so please sign up only when you are ready to pay for your ticket.  If you really want to go but need to pay a little later, just email me to let me know it's coming, we can work that out.

Refunds are offered if you cancel by noon on the Friday one week before the show.

Now, the important info! -

Flypoet Showcase is a multi-performer show of primarily spoken word artists but also music and art. John Hensley, the man who puts it all together every month, is amazing. Works his tail off scheduling interesting, thought-provoking and entertaining poets and musicians, and usually an opening comedian. During all of the performances, an artist, Norton Wisdom, is on the side of the stage creating giant art posters interpreting what's going on onstage. He sells his work as well, and I have a few prints that I love. This happens the first Friday of every month.

The cover charge is $20 and we get seats and tables reserved up front. It's a little tricky because we have to buy the VIP tables in groups of four, but I'll work that out, just sign up and send your payment and you're guaranteed a good table. Specialty martinis are $5 before 8:00; otherwise, full bar, but there is no minimum.

Yummy authentic & cheap tacos, burritos & quesadillas available ($1-$4).

The show absolutely starts on time, 8:03 pm, and you are out of there by 10:15 to 10:30 (there is free live reggae after the show, you are welcome to stay, but they do remove our tables, since they are on the dance floor). Also, there is plenty of street parking (but beware - now that it's on Fri. instead of Weds., you have to feed the meter to cover you until 9:00).

To pay by Paypal so no service charge is deducted - Log in separately to Paypal, don't use the Meetup link.  Choose "send money" - Enter the amount, $20.00, and my email address, [masked], then check the box that says "I'm sending money to family or friends", then hit "continue"; on the next screen, scroll down to the bottom and in the "message" section, enter "Flypoet 5/3", then click on "send money".

If you are not set up on paypal, you can pay by check, the address is in the question below.  My phone is 626/298-0717.  The night of the show, when you enter the club turn to the RIGHT, not the left, tell the lady @ the door you are prepaid and you are @ Carol Germain's table. Plenty of free parking on the street within a block or so, or you can valet.  (I usually park on Nutwood, right around the corner from the club, west of LaBrea, quite a few spaces).

If you mapquest or GPS driving directions, be sure to put a space between "La" and "Brea" when putting in the address, some of the databases get confused and tell you it doesn't exist if you run it all together.

      I agree - that was the best set I've ever heard from Talaam - he needs that time pressure so he doesn't ramble between pieces. I think overall it's better being on a tighter time schedule so it's all bam, bam, bam, no one has time to do anything but do their poems. And the free reggae afterwards is nice, too bad we can't keep our tables though. I did think that main microphone was a little inconsistent, did anyone else? I think when John, the comedian, and the band were on, it wasn't clear, or maybe it was just too loud. Anyway a good show, and I loved the young girls that Iyesha brought, I had hoped to go to some of the competitions she sponsored but never found the time, hopefully more of her up-and-coming "discoveries" will perform @ future shows.

    Hi Carol, I plan on going however, I prefer to sit further back. I want to be sure you are given "credit" for my ticket. Should I pay you the $15 in advance for general admission or pay at the door? I may also bring my brother and nephew.
